Robotics Banquet 2019
All good things come to an end — said no RoboCat ever! This year has been one of the greatest years yet in the short lifespan of the RoboCats and we aim to proudly continue that for many years to come. And to wrap it up, we held our Robotics Banquet yesterday! Let's rewind and have a look at all our accomplishments...
During the FTC Season The Mechanicats made major progress. They got qualified at Townview for regionals and then competed at the Wylie Qualifiers. They were then invited to Austin States for the FTC Championship.
Then came the FRC Season. While we didn't do our best at the Greenville FRC, we placed 2nd at the Dallas FRC Qualifiers and made it to State. After a competing at State, in Austin, we qualified to be in World Championship in Houston! Although we didn't win, we gained both an incredible amount of education and experience while we were there.
But we're not stopping there! Throughout the summer, we hope to host STEMConnect workshops, started by FRC Team 2468 (Who do we appreciate?) and expand our community outreach via deaf education and Women in STEM.
